How well does the 2020 Tacoma handle in the snow?
If you live in the Midwest, then you’re familiar with harsh and heavy winters. As a result, when you shop for a vehicle, a very real consideration is if the vehicle can handle snowy, icy, windy weather. It’s so important that many times it can make or break your decision to purchase a specific vehicle.
Today we’ll examine if the 2020 Toyota Tacoma is good in the snow.
Tacoma Drivetrain and Off-Road Features
The 2020 Tacoma has an available 4WD drivetrain on many of its models. Naturally, having a vehicle where all the wheels receive power is great for traction. The TRD trims of the Tacoma have even more features that help it in off-road and snowy/icy situations. There’s the crawl control system that automatically modulates throttle and braking with five different low-speed settings. The electronic locking rear differential gives your rear wheels more traction. A multi-terrain select system regulates wheelspin by automatically adjusting throttle and traction control. Hill start assist control minimizes backward roll on inclines.
Tacoma Safety Features
The Tacoma has myriad safety features to help you out in bad weather as well. For instance, it has the Toyota Safety Sense™ P (TSS-P) suite of features. That suite includes a pre-collision system with pedestrian detection, dynamic radar cruise control, lane departure alert, and automatic high beams. Also available is a blind spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alert. The Star System System™ on every Tacoma includes vehicle stability control, traction control, anti-lock brakes, electronic brake-force distribution, brake assist, and smart stop technology. These systems and features will help keep you safe, even in poor weather conditions.
